DISTURBING THE PEACE


Tuesday, May 9 at 7:30 pm | Members $11 | Public $16
With Director Stephen Apkon

A group of former enemy combatants, Israeli soldiers and Palestinian fighters, embark on a transformational journey to become non-violent peace activists.

Based in the Middle East, Disturbing The Peace is the true story of how Israeli soldiers and Palestinian fighters, mortal enemies, come to be even stronger allies. These opposing combatants -pawns of a larger struggle- join together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” These soldiers committed to armed battle transform into nonviolent peace activists: Combatants for Peace. Let this story of overcoming hate and bias evoke the universal values shared by us all and inspire us to become active participants in the creation of our world. (USA, Israel & Palestine, 2016, 83 min., English, NR, DCP | Dir. Stephen Apkon & Andrew Young)
